Out in Nature

NatureThere is something to be said about hearing the trees sing from the finger tips of the winds carress.

Listening to hawks soar while feeling the 
tender kisses of the sun on your back.

Glycemic Index (GI)

Why it’s important!

5594436-cherry-with-sugar-lips-between-woman-perfect-teeth-macro-mouth-2I’d like to explain, what Glycemic index(GI) is , why it’s important and how this knowledge can help you burn fat. For me to do that, I first need to explain a little about how our bodies work.

complex carbs

Many of us are told to eat low carbohydrate foods. Let me explain…when I’m talking carbs, I’m talking complex carbs not refined. Eating low carb, is great but there’s another bad boy in play when it comes to your body burning fat. He’s called insulin. What….you say? This guy is what keeps us from developing diabetes. He’s one of the good guys. This, is true. Your pancreas secretes the hormone insulin. When we dump sugar into our system, insulin quickly removes it from our blood stream. This, is a good thing. What you don’t understand, is that when our bodies secrete insulin. Our bodies also stop burning fat….and start storing it!

Insulin does such a good job of removing sugars from our blood stream, that it’s stuck swimming around with nothing to do….this is where the trouble really begins. Insulin then tells our body…”Yo dude! We don’t have anything to do….why don’t you eat something high in sugar, again!” and here comes that craving that follows after you gave into insulineating that delicious donut! The addiction of crack cocaine/sugar begins. From here, it gets even worst. Once you’ve secreted insulin….your body continues to store fat five hours after you’ve consumed that donut. Even if your eating right during that time!

Now that you know, a partial role insulin plays on fat burning. I can explain what glycemic Index (GI) is. It’s rated on a scale from 1 – 200. That rating corresponds on how quickly sugar is absorbed into your blood stream. In other words, how fast your blood sugar will spike. For example, a low glycemic index food would have a GI rating of 20, like the spaghetti squash I mentioned on the previous blog. A teaspoon of table sugar has a GI of about 68.

sugar-dumbHere’s the important part. The part about why knowing this will help you burn fat. When choosing whole food’s.  You want to strive to eat things under that number, 68.  This is because you’ll keep your pancreas from secreting insulin. Which in turn allows your body to continue to burn fat.

There are a few exceptions of when you want to choose a high GI food. But, we’ll get into that in a later blog.  There are several things that play into burning fat. This is just one piece to the puzzle. And Every part of a puzzle is important if you want to put it together.

Now that you know what GI is, why it’s important, and how this can help you burn more fat. I wish you good luck on applying this bit of knowledge into youre lifestyle. Here are a few websites that can help you identify low glycemic foods.  If you find any other useful websites, please feel free to share.

           Squash is fan flipping tastic! For a mash potato replacement use the Delicata squash or sweat potatoes. Just add butter and salt after baking. Sweat potatoes are also great for making french fries. Just bake them instead of deep-frying them. For that pasta fix, spaghetti squash or shirataki noodles. Add butter, salt and chives after cooking or anything else you’d like. Make spaghetti and meat balls or add some ground turkey and enjoy! The only thing I don’t like about Shirataki noodles is that they’re sold in plastic. Maybe they will eventually package them without the BPA.

How to cook Squash: Cut in half and scrape out the seeds with a spoon.  Place upside down in a foil covered cookie pan and add 1 inch of water.  Bake in oven at 375 Degrees for 45 min. It’s done when you can stick a fork through the skin. Scrape out the meat from inside of the skin, season with your favorite herbs and salt.
